Let's talk about healthy dog food choices. Now this time, in these times there are as many diets as there ever have been for dogs. And so there's so many different companies and you have to be careful because everything that they say might not always be true, because they're all competing and saying theirs is better than the other. When we to talk about healthy choices in healthy dog foods what we're really talking about are supplements. Dog food should be fortified with vitamins and minerals normally for puppies or adults and it should say that on the bag. However, these days things have changed and more research has shown that adding glucosamine, fish oils, DHA, things like that in these dog foods is actually making them more healthy, making their skin healthier, making their joints healthier in the long run. And so, use discretion when you're looking at dog foods. Because the other big thing is going to be preservatives. You want to look for a diet that has less preservatives, less additives, less filler, because those are things obviously that your pet does not need. And so, there are lots of diets like I said, lots of added ingredients that they may not tell you about. So you want to do your research, talk to your veterinary clinic. They can guide you through the best foods that are out there, you know, some that are completely natural, some that do have preservatives but yet are healthy choices as well. You never want to use people food because that always leads to problems, obesity, pancreatitis, vomiting, that sort of thing. It's just hard to pull off unless you know exactly what you're doing. And so with what your veterinary clinic suggests and they can help you through that.
